theBalm Overshadow Review

As much as I wanted to wait for Sephora’s Friend and Family Discount to take place I couldn’t do it and my lemmings got the better of me! Thus I ended up purchasing all of the new Overshadows from theBalm.

Really! Honest! I did try to refrain but they were so tempting in their cute little pots all shimmery and glimmering! I think I heard them whisper, “buy me, buy me”…Oh wait maybe that was just me whispering it to myself.

I had previously blogged about these gems and you can read my first impression here.

These are $14 each so they aren’t going to break the bank too much and a little goes a long way. There are four colors available and of course yours truly, had a hard time firguring out which I wanted so all four somehow got plopped into my cart.

The shadows are super pigmented and can easily be worn as a shadow if you so choose but you’ll be nicely rewarded if you use them as per the instructions which would be over your shadow.

I find that these work a treat on spicing up matte shadows (I don’t have too many matte shadows but these do a great job of taking matte into wow) or adding that extra bit of sparkle you need to make your eyes pop!

If you’re a glitter hater these are not for you as they have tons of yummie shimmery bits and pieces to keep the Muse very happy!

These are a snap to use and a tiny bit on your brush is enough to light up your eyes and take any old eyeshadow and turn into a new sparkling shade! The four shades available are:

If You’re Rich, I’m Single
This is a mauve shimmer but it can pass for almost brown in color. Works perfect over purples, browns, and blacks.

No Money, No Honey
My favorite of the lot. This is a shimmering gold color and works well on top of yellows, oranges, pinks, blacks, and browns.

Work Is Overrated
Another fav of mine this is a shimmering light pink color and works well over golds, browns, pinks, and purples.

You Buy, I’ll Fly
Yet another fav of mine this one is a gorgeous shimmering cooper shade and works fantastic on top of brown mainly! It also works well on oranges and yellows.

I have to say even if the quality didn’t sell me I’d probably be so diseased as to purchase them for the mega cute packaging! Each pot has a different glamorous girl on the case which really adds a sweet touch to the cosmetic icon wink

The Muse recommends them!
